Eldad Zacksenhaus
BSc, PhD
Professor
Research Location: Other (e.g. government, industry, etc.)
Primary Research Area: Cancer
Secondary Research Area: Molecular & Cell Biology

We are using mouse models, cell and molecular biology and bioinformatics to identify mechanisms of cancer initiation, progression and metastasis, that can be exploited for novel therapy.  We focus on breast and brain cancers, the tumor suppressors Rb, Pten and p53 as well as the HER2 oncogene. We are also studying the effect of the Rb pathway on aging.
